    So I’m 16, and my sister is 22. When she was my age, she was allowed a double bed, allowed to wear low cut tops etc and boyfriends. However, my mum won’t let me get a double bed, when literally every single one of my friends has one and I’m not even lying, and she won’t let me wear low cut tops. Also my sister failed pretty much everything but still managed to go to uni and get a degree, yet she’s very pushy on me to revise all the time. How is this even fair? It’s normally the first child the mother is extremely strict on and then after that they are more lenient. However with me she is getting stricter by the day!! How can I change this? Would anything I say to her change this or just cause an argument?

    I'm so sorry I don't really know what to advise in this situation, I am the eldest child and I'm the one where everything is being tested on to see if it's effective and would work for the rest of my siblings 🤷🏽*♀️ good luck though!!

    I think quite often parents will let older children get away with stuff and then stop younger ones because they've learned from past mistakes,
    I can't comment too much because my sister feels I got away with stuff she never did but I think my mum was strict
    So maybe it's a perspective thing?

    Well I’m not sure about that, but why would that stop her from letting me where low cut tops and getting a double bed etc?
